NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 20 - THE STORY OF NABHI AND AVATHAR OF RISHABADEVA

Dasakam-20-The Story of Nabhi & 

Avathar of Rishabhadeva




Swambhuvo Manu's elder son was King Priyavrata. Priyavrata's elder son was Aagnidhara. He ruled the Jambudweepa had a son called Nabhi. King Nabhi was not having children for a long time. Therefore, he performed a yagna together with his wife Meru Devi. Lord appeared in the sacrificial fire and granted a boon that Lord himself will be born as child to the couple. 

At appropriate time, King Nabhi handed over the administration to Rishabadeva and left to forest with his queen to perform penance and merged with Lord.

King Rishaba ruled the world with prosperity so much so that Indra became jealous and stopped rain for the continent but with Rishaba's yogic power, rain was brought back. Winning over Indra, Rishaba took the hand of his daughter Jayanthi and they had one hundred sons, eldest of them was Bharatha.

Among hundred, Bharatha became the next king of Bharathavarsha. Nine of the other sons became yogis; another nine ruled over various other regions, remaining eighty one became Brahmins by the power of their spiritual actions. Rishaba advised all his sons and other yogis, the path of salvation through renouncing desires and indulging in deep devotion to Lord. 

Rishaba moved to forest and indulged himself in severe penances leading a life of total renunciate. He wandered all through the earth, observing the life of python, cow, deer, crow, advising spiritual values to people and devotion to supreme Lord as means of salvation. Finally Rishaba Deva merged with Lord, by giving his body to a forest fire in the Coorg mountains, thus completing his spiritual journey in Earth.

Reciting the story of Nabhi and Lord's avatara as Rishabadeva, Bhattadiri requests Lord to remove all his sufferings and cure him of his ailments.
